Rupert & Rothschild Baron Edmond 2015
Baron Edmond is the top cuvee produced by Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons in South Africa using Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Maturation occurs in new French for no less than twenty two months, lending plenty of ageing potential and a prominent smoky character. Historically, Edmond has been bold, richly extracted, incredibly smoky and very intense.
Delicate aromas of blackberry, blackcurrants, cedar wood and forest floor. Classically structured mouth-feel with a supple texture, complex layers and a focused linearity on the finish. A delicious partner with beef sirloin. The style of Baron Edmond has evolved over the years, from a heavily barrel-influenced blend that was overtly smoky and rich to a more complex, elegant and altogether more sophisticated wine.
